Bengali name : KOLMI

I would also like to add that we often take the leaves of this plant as vegetable.


I have a particular liking for the closeup of the sepals as seen here
I’d be interested in a view of any seedpods should anyone be in a position to share seedpod photos


I will keep a watch for its seed-pod and will certainly send you as well as to this group. Meanwhile, here is one, I. marginata, that i collected today.

seedpod : Ipomoea aquatica from Hooghly:  Found seedpod of Ipomoea aquatica Forssk. this morning.

Species : Ipomoea aquatica Forssk.

Habit & Habitat : wild aquatic herb

Date : 11-04-2012, 10.00 a.m.

Place : Gobra (Hooghly), WB


Today i visited the place again to see the development/growth of the seedpods of Ipomoea aquatica. But they seemed to be of same sized as were 5 days ago. Collected two and took photographs under 5 watt CFT light without using flash.

Each seedpod bears four seeds, each one shaped like a quarter of a sphere/globe, arranged side by side to make a perfect sphere shaped seedpod.

Attaching one photo only to reduce mail size so that it reaches eflora website.


Since google currently doesn’t support bigger than 100kb attachment attaching the images directly from the eflora site.

Convolvulaceae by sepal from Hooghly: KOLMI or Ipomoea aquatica Frosk. is very common aquatic herb and well known to me.

Well, i thought so…..
… liked sepal pictures in a couple of posts during Convolvulaceae week. I wondered what could be the reason behind it! Today, the same sepals saved me from a wrong ID, i think.
Let’s see leaves and flowers of Merremia umbellata subsp. orientalis (Hallier f.) Ooststr. – https://groups.google.com/d/topic/indiantreepix/u5YPqpxN9xw/discussion/ and Merremia umbellatahttps://groups.google.com/d/topic/indiantreepix/e_96ZGDLswg/discussion.
I attach some pictures, taken today, series marked by Ipomoea1…., Ipomoea2…. Ipomoea3 and Ipomoea4. The first two series are from the same pond and there was only one white flowering plant.
Species : Ipomoea aquatica Frosk.

Wild plant ID request – RK24 – 17-Oct-2012:  This plant / herb (?) was trailing along the surface of the ground, the leaves I found quite pretty and took some pictures in Mumbai. Hope it would be possible to id it.


Wait for flowers, but I won’t be surprised if it turns out to be Ipomoea aquatica.


Yes, it looks like I. aquatica to me too.


I agree with … and … I think this is one of the very popular vegetables in Indonesia i.e. the purple Ipomoea aquatica.


I agree with the other responsees. Water laden stem; purple tinge goes in favour of Ipomoea aquatica (My perception). Simple question….any water body nearby to confirm this??


Water body may not always be necessary for this plant where sometimes bare moist soil may be enough. I was surprised a find one patch in Delhi growing along roadside, partially rising (climbing) along the fencing. Perhaps rain water collected in monsoon was enough to set it growing, and it survived long after ground was more or less dry, flowering profusely.


Ok I understand.


Thanks a lot … It is really interesting to know that it is a popular edible plant. There is no waterbody nearby… it had rained at night around ten days back and I took the pictures the following morning. Tks again for all the fascinating info.

Requesting to please ID this plant with light pink flowers – Convolvulaceae captured in Mumbai in April 2013.


Seems to be Ipomoea aquatica.
The leaves are hastate.

Could you please confirm the habitat


May be I. aquatica


The plant was growing in an open field. There was a small pond nearby…

Location: Assam
Family :Convolvulaceae
Genus & species : Ipomoea aquatica Forssk
Habitat: Grows and forming mat over the water surface, also grows on wet places

Habit : Aquatic herb,


Yes, lovely record !


Yes it is also blooming here in Pantnagar area nowadays.



/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Ipomoea%20aquatica.jpg

I had a wrong notion that rabbits love carrots the most. At least two of them, recent addition to our family, defy it, they love the leaves and stems of Ipomoea aquatica the most.

Every alternate day we buy 3 or 4 bundles of those leaves from our local bazaar, not to be used as SHAK/SHAG for ourselves but for those two bunnies! This is an extra expenditure and my mom resolved to plant a few in the pond in front of our kitchen. It is flowering now!
Another interesting fact is all efloras (FoC, FoP, FoZ) and old lit. inform that flowers of this species are white, pink or lilac with darker centre, but this is pure white, as in –
enjoyable

but … you just increased my sitting at the computer time

so many interesting utube uploads

Ipomoea aquatica.


… may be a leaf variant of Ipomoea marginata (uncertain due to lack of requisite details)
note* – leaves of Ipomoea marginata can have very variable leaves
………………………………
I would like to request that clear sideviews showing the outer tube of the bloom , sepals and fruit (at any and all stages) be included when this is available as all of the aforementioned parts are important for Convolvulaceae identification


Great, will try and get detailed pictures of the flower


Flower tube and diameter are far too large (in relation to hand) to be Convolvulus arvensis.
The plant could be Ipomoea aquatica based on the latest photo.
I have attached a set of cropped and detail enhanced images of plant #2 for additional reference.
Fruit would be definitive.

Yes, we eat the greens as veggie in Bengal… called Kalami saag … not to be eaten during monsoon….
also used for increasing mothers milk postpartum, supposed to have anti-viral preoperties towards vacciniea
helps detox from arsenic and opium toxicity etc etc

I have heard many people including my mom saying that we should not eat this plant during monsoon I am curious to know the reason for it.


we were told , in Bangla.. :nana rokom rog hoy, tai..khaben na” … translation… many diesaes occur doe to water born pathogens… so do not eat.. we have seen ascaris eggs attached to the stem and mosquito eggs… asla we did not photograph them in those days…

Another admonition given in the erthnobotany class was: ” tatka tule khaben” translation… eat only freshly plucked saag…


Thanks .. your justification is quite reasonable
